Arsenal made it two wins from their first two Premier League matches with a 2-1 victory over Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. Alexandre Lacazette put the Gunners ahead in the 13th Minuted from a Dani Ceballos Corner.
The visitors leveled matters two minutes from half time through Ashley Barnes to go into the break in his spirits. The Gunners were however back in front from through last season’s Golden Boot winner Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Interestingly, new signing Dani Ceballos assisted both Arsenal goals and is only the third Arsenal player to do so after Ray Parlour and Henrik Mkhitaryan. The Spanish midfielder showed great control, passing and dribbling skills and was voted as the man Of the match.
The Arsenal fans on Twitter were absolutely loving his performance..

Standing ovation for Dani Ceballos and richly deserved at that. The best full debut at the Emirates in a very long time.

Ceballos definitely my MOTM. Insane talent. Its so hard to win the ball off him. Brilliant in tight spaces and when pressed. Creates a lot of openings for us. Gives our midfield that much needed composure. Going to be a key player for us this season.
